Wild trade for Hanzal and White

He continued to play with HC Ceské Budejovice through several age levels, and in 2005, the Arizona Coyotes drafted him 17th overall in the NHL Entry Draft. A 6-foot-6, 225-pound two-way player, Hanzal has also won 56 percent of his faceoffs this season - a number coach Bruce Boudreau cares very much about. He was the leading scorer for the Iowa Wild, scoring 18 goals and 18 assists in 47 games, though he was consistently passed over when the big team needed someone to call up.

The Coyotes now sit second-to-last in the National Hockey League with 51 points. Instead, reports indicate the Wild, Predators, and Penguins were among the top suitors before Arizona and Minnesota finalized a deal. "I hope we're a hard team to play against".

"Minnesota clearly stepped up", Chayka said.

Hanzal was considered one of the top rental players available and the top rental forward, hence his value being higher than the price the Los Angeles Kings paid for pending free-agent goaltender Ben Bishop in their deal with the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Should the Wild make another hasty exit, though, Fletcher will have to answer even more questions about whether trading for Hanzal was ultimately worth it. White has seven goals and six helpers in 46 contests.

Minnesota has a good chance to make a run at the Western Conference title this season, but it could have used these assets to target an impact player better than Hanzal.

For the Wild, fulfilling their longstanding Stanley Cup goal is priceless. "He hasn't comes to me and said, 'Look, I want to pursue other opportunities.' And that's where we're at today".

The move signals an aggressive approach from the Wild, who lead the Central Division and Western Conference.
